Is the PC just continually rebooting? Can you read what the white text is saying? This is usually an indicator of either the operating system not being able to load, or whatever boot device is being used not being available. Is there a floppy disk in the floppy drive? This will cause this issue as well. Take all disks out of the drive, floppy, cd, dvd, everything, then try and restart the PC. If this doesn't help, please post what the white lettering is saying so we can get a clearer picture of what is happening.

Try first unplugging power cord for ten minutes.

If this does not work, see if you are able to staRT a Windows installation, using a Windows setup disk.

If the comp[uter does not finish post and start booting, that means that there is an hardware fault.

When booting up, the monitor status splash shows up. Then it goes into a black screen with some small white boxes in upper left-hand corner. It takes forever to display the log-in screen, probably more...


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

I have a gateway gx7022e windows xp computer. When i try to boot it up the white letters pop up then the screen goes to the gateway screen and freezes. Then my num lock comes on but my keyboard wont work....


At power on / power up, look for the key during the bootup (black screen with white text), that allows you to enter SETUP. If none designated such as F1, F2 F10 etc, then quickly click the delete button a few times and that may get you into setup. You may have to turn off the computer if you miss that window of time if it rfequires pressing the delete button a few times. Keep an eye out for the Enter Setup key though. To turn off the computer press and hold the power button 'till is shuts down and resart the process until you get to the setup screen in bios. In setup bios environment, look for set factory defaults and then save and restart. That may solve the issue of the lockup.

By the way, is it an LCD screen? I guess so. LCDs have small IC's either on the lower portion or in the left side of the screen. When these become loose, the tendency is to have vertical or horizontal lines on the screen. Hot air blower might solve the problem. But most will not. Better claim warranty or replace the unit.

Memory Card Reader


You should find your SD card listed as a drive type 'Devices with Removable Storage' in Windows explorer. To find, click on the Windows Start button (lower left-hand corner of your screen) and click on 'Computer' on the right-hand side of the menu that pops up.

A quicker way to bring this up is to press the Windows key on your keyboard (usually located between the Ctrl and Alt keys on the left-hand side) and the letter 'E' .

Once open you should see your SD card listed under drive type 'Devices with Removable Storage'. Double-click on it to open and see the photos on the card.

I have an acer aspire laptop and everytime i turn it on it comes up with a black screen and a flashing white underscore in the top left hand corner is there a way to fix this?


White underscores rock. They let you enter your BIOS password and stuff. Your system has achieved Zen and you're unhappy with that? You better clear up what you wish it would do for you.

To disable:

Open Norton's main window and click 'tasks and settings'
On the left hand side click 'change advanced settings'
Uncheck the transaction security box on left hand side.

Hope that helps.
